Asia: Yosuke Sekiya chosen Player of the Year 2012

The winner of the prestigious trophy Asia Player of The Year is the Japanese Yosuke Sekiya. After having finished 2nd in the Macau Poker Cup Championship, the Japanese already inscribed his name in the top of this ranking list of the best player in the continent. Despite the presence of contenders for the title who also deserve this prize, there was among others Nicky Tao Jin, Celina Lin, Tony Chang, Justin Chan or Jay Tan, and despite their good performance, Sekiya has not been dethroned. Note that throughout this year, the Japanese recorded a nice prize-list : a fifth place at the Red Dragon deepstack of HKD $ 1,350, a third place in the Red Dragon HKD $ 3,600 NLHE, a victory at the Red Dragon Bounty NLHE of HKD $ 2,250, a sixth place at the Red Dragon Bounty HKD $ 2,250, a 12 th place at the Asia Championship of Poker (ACOP) NLHE Deepstack of HKD $ 9,200 and a 9 th place in the ACOP NLHE Turbo of HKD$ 2,250.

Despite all these paid places, Yosuke Sekiya didn't easily qualify to this title because a big suspense was still pending when his compatriot Tsugunari Toma reached the final table of the main event of the ACOP. It was the elimination of Toma before the title that was his salvation. Sekiya joined them the ranks of former champions Kitty Kuo, Bryan Huang and Hung-Sheng Lin who won the trophy respectively in 2009, 2010 and 2011. In addition to winning this award, Sekiya also received great rewards including one year of sponsorship from one of the biggest online poker room in the world.
